Bloody Gums? Check Your Medications

Posted .

Occasionally bleeding gums mean your gums are just slightly irritated, but other times bloody gums mean that something extra serious. It’s crucial that you don’t delay in caring for your bloody gums before your disease turns more serious. Think about the following if you’ve observed any blood in your gums recently.

Could your medicine be initiating your bleeding gums? Some aspirins thin blood, resulting in bleeding in the gums and other places. Some prescription meds can cause your gums to bleed. If you have been practicing good oral hygiene for a while and your gums started bleeding only recently, it’s likely that medication is the cause. Let Dr. Marco Holgado know what medications you’re taking.

Have you visited our office in a while? One of the most important and most effective ways to prevent bleeding gums is to receive a professional oral cleaning at least once each six months. Severe diseases like tartar collection and gum disease can only be treated by a dental professional, so please make sure that you visit the dentist regularly.
